Hungary - Intimate Partner Violence
No criminal offense by itself, but an aggravating feature.
Legal provisions on protection orders
On 6 June 2013 Hungary joined the new regulation which complements the ‘European protection order’. It guarantees that victims and survivors of domestic violence can rely on restraint or protection orders issued against the perpetrator in their own country when they travel or move to another EU country.
For example: Criminal Code, Section 202
- The person who induces a person who has not yet completed his fourteenth year, to have sexual intercourse or to fornicate with another person, commits a felony and shall be punishable with imprisonment from one year to five years.
- The person who has completed his eighteenth year and strives to persuade a person who has not yet completed his fourteenth year, to have sexual intercourse or to fornicate with another person, commits a felony, and shall be punishable with imprisonment of up to three years.
- The punishment shall be imprisonment from two years to eight years, or from one year to five years, respectively, if the injured party of the crime defined in subsections (1) or (2) is a relative of the perpetrator, or is under the education, supervision, care or medical treatment of the perpetrator.
